Michael Musto, Jesse Green & Patrick Healy Set for THEATER TALK's Fall 2013 Preview, 10/25-28
Theater journalists Jesse Green (drama critic at New York Magazine), Patrick Healy (of The New York Times) and Michael Musto (MUSTO! The Musical/Out.com) join co-hosts Michael Riedel and Susan Haskins for a preview of the fall theater season, featuring a free-wheeling conversation full of insider information, opinion and humor.
The Fall Preview 2013 edition of THEATER TALK premieres in the New York metropolitan area Friday, October 25 - 28 (2013) at 1 AM (Saturday morning) on Thirteen/PBS, and continues on CUNY TV* Saturday at 8:30 PM, Sunday at 12:30 PM, and Monday at 7:30 AM, 1:30 PM, and 7:30 PM.
The New York theater season is revving up with several star-driven plays (most notably, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in Harold Pinter's Betrayal) dominating public interest and ticket sales. At the same time, a number of other new but lesser-known shows are entering the fray in search of success. The panel talks about productions that they look forward to, as well as others already facing problems. In addition to Betrayal, shows discussed include Big Fish, The Glass Menagerie, No Man's Land/Waiting for Godot, Domesticated, Twelfth Night/Richard III, A Night with Janis Joplin, A Gentlemen's Guide to Love and Murder and The Winslow Boy.
THEATER TALK is jointly produced by the not-for-profits Theater Talk Productions and CUNY TV. The program is taped in the Himan Brown TV and Radio Studios at The City University of New York (CUNY) TV in Manhattan, and is distributed to 70+ participating public television stations nationwide. THEATER TALK is made possible in part by The New York State Council on the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, The TDF/TAP Plus Program, The CUNY TV Foundation and The Friends of THEATER TALK.
